Tips for using Craft Gumball with speech impairment
Use point markers to keep your students engaged in their vocal sound productions. Ask your student to decorate the paper plate with stitches before creating the gumball. To make sure you get lots of repetitions in a session, you can ask your students to say their sound / word for each point they make on the plate. Or, you can ask your students to drill five words / sounds per point.
Sometimes if my students have a hard time waiting or if they take a long time to make stitches, I will drill for 1 to 2 minutes, then let my students put 5 to 10 points on the paper and repeat until that the paper plate is fully decorated. .
